I was scheduled to stay 5 days for a retreat. The place was old and furnished cheap, but I was glad to find a reasonable rate in Monterey. When I entered the room, it was filled with a toxic bleach smell. Tried to open the window, but it was stuck. Called the office to help me open it. One of... More

Definitely no frills. Wish I had read your reviews before booking, hasty booking at last minute. No change from the bad reviews of 2014. Long black hairs in our bed and dirty looking sheets and pillowcases. Asked for clean sheets which the lady on front desk came and gave us, she then told us that the pillow cases were not... More

Its a place for only one night. Simple bedrooms, but the place is clean. Tha forniture is a bit old. Poor breakfast and not very gentle staff. Parking lot for all rooms. Good location, but not that extraordinary.

Thin walls, old beds with ugly spreads, stained blankets, towels you can read through, and single ply toilet paper at $160 a night. What more could you want? Well, if it is one of the last rooms around on a Saturday night you take it. The outside is charming but old, the rooms could be the same but they miss... More

We moved out of the room in the middle of the night after discovering a bedbug. We captured it and showed it to the front desk lady the next morning. She crushed it and said, "That wasn't a bedbug." No refund. Stay away. We had a much better experience at the Best Western a couple of blocks down the road.

I told the receptionist that I accept the room if she could garuantee it was a clean room. However, when I was paying by my creditcard she... More

We spent two nights here and with the benefit of hindsight wished we had been able to stay somewhere else. The motor festival at Pebble Beach probably contributed to the lack of available accommodation when we were booking our trip. The website states that Padre Oaks has a pool; it, in fact, does not and has not had one for... More

Read the reviews but decided to give them a chance anyway. Mom and Pop place, owners seemed pleasant enough. I booked the hotel through booking.com. Hotel very old and outdated. Floral bedspreads and bed skirts, ugh. No A/C, drove to WalMart to get a fan just to have some circulation in the room. Picked up some air freshener too as... More

Older motel, park directly in front of your door, inexpensive, clean and good location. I would stay again. Bathroom had been remodeled fairly recently. Not posh but very reasonable for a peak month. Directly across the street from Del Momte a Shopping Center. Few minutes drive to Carmel.
